, and PA include running, hopping, skipping (locomotor), throwing, catching, kicking (object control), balancing, twisting, and dodging (stability) ( Department of Education Victoria, 1996 ; Gallahue, Ozmun, & Goodway, 2012 ). Previous evidence suggests that children have the developmental potential to

and social settings throughout their childhood ( Jurbala, 2015 ; Whitehead, 2010 ). Children with greater competence in locomotor skills have significantly less sedentary time than those with poorer locomotor skills, and total motor skill performance is significantly associated with time spent in

, Hass, Naik, Lodha, & Cauraugh, 2010 ; Kindregan, Gallagher, & Gormley, 2015 ; Nayate, Bradshaw, & Rinehart, 2005 ). Fundamental movement skills (FMS) can be described as object control (object manipulation: e.g., throwing a ball), locomotor skills (movements of the body from one spot to another: e

, Lee, & Schmidt, 2008 ; Kleim & Jones, 2008 ). For example, data in patients with or without neurological injury (stroke or SCI) suggest that stepping practice at high aerobic intensities (70–80% of predicted maximum heart rate) or difficult stepping tasks may facilitate gains in locomotor function

history in research, more recently, the standing long jump has been recommended as a measure for musculoskeletal fitness in children ( Institute of Medicine, 2012 ). This fundamental foot locomotor activity requires manipulation of one’s center of mass (COM) and extremities with initial preparatory and

This study aimed to test the hypothesis that f R , unlike V ˙ O 2 and HR, is a good marker of physical effort
